Wine, Romance, and Books for Literacy

Tomorrow from 2-4pm, I’ll be out on the eastern tip of Long Island at the Pindar Vineyards for a multi-author book signing with Gina Ardito, Patti Ann Bengen, Debora Dennis, Candace Gold, Barbara Metzger, Jean Marie Pierson and Bertrice Small – I am going to try not to squee like a fangirl at Ms. Small. One of her books, Blaze Wyndham, is among my favorite re-reads from the old skool days of romance.

The signing was organized by the newly-formed Dunes & Dreams chapter of the RWA, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Suffolk Literacy.

For all the details, check out the Dunes & Dreams page or visit the Pindar Vineyard page for driving directions. If the weather is like it was today, look for the wet person with the Heaving Bosoms – that’ll be me.

    You are such a lucky duck! Barbara Metzger—here’s a teensy blurb on one of her books I have most enjoyed. It’s laugh-outloud funny: Snowdrops and Scandalbroth. Fawcett, 1997.
    Characters: Courtney Choate, Viscount Chase & Miss Kathlyn Parthland Summary: Virgin tries to prove he’s a rake by hiring a poor lady to play his mistress. Rating: excellent … the review is from the Good Ton website. And it’s funny, I just read the New Yorker article on La Nora and she never has written about a male virgin. Just coincidence I guess. The writer made a mistake though. Dr. Mira was raped by her step-father and her mother and father reconciled and are living in CT. I think :) I have a Beatrice Small on my shelf, The Innocent, and I don’t care to examine too closely why I do. She did pave the way though.

    Have fun!!

    You are lucky to meet Bertrice – she is a legend!  Many of her books are dedicated to her beloved George, who served as a radio operator in Rheims, France, during WWII.  RT readers had the privilege to meet George, in his original WWII uniform, at the SOS Military Mixer in 2008/Pittsburg.  Bertrice was so proud of him!  Bertrice remains a stalwart supporter of military personnel and their families besides being a fabulous writer!

    I’m so glad to see the Literacy connection.  I’ve been a volunteer for the Adult Literacy League in Orlando for close to 29 years now. It’s such an important cause.  Best of luck!

    We can’t wait to meet you too, Sarah! What could be better than a day of wine and romance? We’ve got a terrific line-up of authors. Looking forward to a great day! :)

    Wine and romance—two great tastes that taste great together!  Good thing you haven’t added in chocolate, or I might have ditched our Fathers’ Day barbecue for your book signing.  Hope you have a blast and raise lots of $ for this great cause.
